Welcome to the Island!
I am a self-proclaimed foodie and have enjoyed cooking and baking since I was little. I loved baking cookies with my mother and grandma as a child, and later making dinners for my parents to foster my passion while in high school. I also had a passion for organizing and keeping things tidy.
After graduating from college with a degree in business, I spent several years as a productivity manager. Being in the management systems field enabled me to better examine processes, streamline tasks, and improve efficiency. My mantra has always been that life is not just about rushing through tasks, it's about making the most of your time. Freeing up time helps maintain a balanced and intentional life.
Being a home cook with a background in productivity allows me to bring a unique perspective to the world of recipe blogging, emphasizing efficiency and practicality without sacrificing taste or quality.
